Too bad they botched the yum repo file and wired it for 64-bit only.
Folks with a mixture of 32-bit and 64-bit systems now have to be careful
to not rsync that file across all their machines.  Much better would be
to use "$basearch" instead of the "x86_64" or "i386".  Folks might want
to use this as their adobe flash repo file:
